(2004/COW ISLAND) 12 tracks (32:19) Boston´s blend of Honky Tonk, Hillbilly and Western Swing. Produced by Sean Mencher. Longtime fans of Boston´s hillbilly scene get misty-eyed when the conversation turns to the golden age of the early ´50s. There was a day when the airwaves crackled with WCOP´s Hayloft Jamboree (three shows a day at one point!), country music was all you heard at dozens of nightspots in and around BostOn, and even the snootiest Hah-vand-educated Boston Brahmin could walk into II Walker´s Riding Apparel and walk out looking like Bob Wills. Indeed, it´s been reported that Boston alone accounted for 25% of all country record sales in the American east during that era. So it´s bats off to The Twilight Ranchers for doing their level best to turn back the clock to that golden age. I first encountered them on a Friday night at the Plough and Stars in Cambridge; a bunch of guys dressed to the nines in vintage western duds and playing instruments at least as old as the songs they were playing. What stood out was the music, though; a blend of classic honky-tonk, hillbilly, and a bit of western swing that had feet a-tappin´ and liquor a-pourin´. There was really no room to dance, but people did anyway. Having since hooked up with string wizard/producer Sean Mencher (High Noon, Wayne Hancock) and engineer Matt Robbins (King Memphis), The Twilight Ranchers now offer the rest of the world a bit of. what Boston´s been hearing for the last couple of years. So without any further ado, I give you WJ, Rob, Jon, Brad, and Matt - The Twilight Ranchers! -Jon Johnson, Country Standard Time magazine.
It´s late summer 1972 in the redwood forests of northern California. It seems a safe and wondrous place, but some of the population of the town of Evergreen is growing pot in the trees, and others are bent on stealing it. Then there´s the coming folk festival, a jamboree bringing in musicians, music fans, war protesters, hippies, the Cossacks and other biker gangs, and the law, both local and federal. Skirting the edges are shades of the Manson family and the Mexican Mafia. Clifford Hickey is scheduled to perform at the festival in what might be his last guitar gig before heading off to law school to please his father. He arrives at the peaceful woodland campsite of his brother Alvaro, but within moments six armed men in badges crash the camp, and Alvaro runs. Clifford is arrested and roughly handcuffed. One of the sheriffs´ nephews has been murdered, and Alvaro is the posse´s quarry. When Clifford´s father and mother arrive on the scene, it´s the beginning of a confrontation between the Hickey family and the locals, including the Cossacks, who seemingly have their own agenda for Alvaro. Clifford, on the brink of adult life, becomes embroiled not only in a murder case but also in what becomes a battle between the Hickeys and the law and, ultimately, the Hickeys and their own past.
